there was a san francisco interface council there was the san francisco conference on religion, race and social concerns which for 25 years was the voice of social justice in the city and county of san francisco. it was that movement that gave birth to the san francisco interfaith council whose mission it is to bring people together of different faiths, to celebrate our diverse spiritual and religious traditions, build understanding, and serve our city. it was a previous mayor that challenged the interface council to step up to the place, to respond to its moral responsibility to care for the homeless at a time of crisis spun out of control, and we did. for almost a quarter of a century we have opened our congregation doors, fed and provided a warm and safe place for homeless men to sleep during the coldest and rainiest nights of the year. it's been this mayor and his predecessors who look to what happened at hurricane katrina, saw the key role that congregation leaders, facilities and congre gants can play at the time of a diseafert disaster and called us to stakeholders and mayor lee invi
books about the revenge of god, that religion is making a comeback as a political player. two-thirds of the 1.2 billion catholics in the world today live outside the west, and most live in societies where religion is critically important, so, yeah, i would say there's still some gas left in the church's political gas tank. >> john, real quickly, only a couple of seconds left here, but what do you know specifically in regards to what they are looking for for a pope? stances on abortion, same-sex marriage, that kind of thing. >> reporter: well, all these cardinals have been appointed by john paul and benedict so they are all in agreement on the main. of course they are looking for a hole guy but three things quickly, one, somebody with a global vision, two, somebody who is a missionary, who can take the church's message to the street and, three, somebody who can fix the perceived internal governance problems in the vatican itself. you roll all that up, you probably have a pope. >> john allen, so good to get your insight. thank you so much for being with us today. >> sure. >> and
religions, actual religions and i think that, look, there's ways that people can take days off for their special days. i think though that you're going to be looked at funny if you insist you need halloween off. i think it's insulting if you're a wiccan or a pagans and if you're an atheist or a pagans, if you're celebrating nature, an everyday experience. >> tucker: only a country too rich too long could be this frivolous and silly. the statements from the school, the information about the wiccan and pagans holidays, the statement says, has been in the guide since last fall. keep in mind this is not intended just for faculty, this is an informational guide for anyone across campus. letting you know. >> letting you know which days you can take. >> tucker: and christianity and comes down to-- >> i think that there's a rejection of tradition. i think this is again, not about elevating anyone else, it's about paganses and wiccans used for a political agenda to downgrade what's important to a majority of americans. i think that this is an anti-tradition action. i think paganses and
then that they get bitter king to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren't like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or antitrade center. as with a toy to explain their frustrations. >> the comments became a big part of the discussion on the left-right culture war. republicans were happy to publicize his comments, but these days they're terrified they might be losing the culture wars on some front, and they may well will. let's look at the grounds on gay marriage. once unthinkable, nine states and the district of columbia have legalized same-sex marriage either by court degree, legislative action or actual popular vote. and now illinois, delaware, and hawaii are also considering legalizing gay marriage, same-sex marriage. and the rights retreat on cultural issues extends to other areas as well. i'm joined by lauren ashburn, found over the daily download and a contributor to the daily beast. oftenly confused with hillary rodham clinton. but not politically. let me talk about this, because you're on the front all the time fighting for same-sex rights and gay rights generally. isn't
. >> it's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment >> same-sex marriage, either by court decree, legislative action or actual popular vote. now, illinois, delaware and hawaii are also considering legalizing gay marriage, same-sex marriage. and the right's retreat extends to other areas, as well. i'm joined by laura ashburn and a contributor to the daily beast, the human rights campaign. often confused with hillary rodham clinton. >>> let me talk about this, you're on the front all of the time fighting for same-sex rights and gay rights generally. isn't it odd that in a country where we've begun to shift dramatically in that direction -- more than acceptance. it's much more positive. it's just, okay, we'll go along with that. at the same time we have a country that still affects gun rights in so many communities. are they different communities? >> i think so. and there's a whole range of issues, you know, that we could talk about from reproductive rights to clim
faith and religion in this country right now. can you tell us what you think the significance of this announcement is? it comes as a shock to us this morning. >> look, it's shocking to me, and i have covered this pope his entire pontificate, but when he was in the previous office he held as cardinal ratzinger, i had the only english interview with this pope at length before his election. it is curious to watch this unfo unfold. because at that time, cardinal ratzinger wanted to retire in 'the 90, '93, again in '96, up to '99. he declined each time, stopped himself and didn't retire, because of the example of the previous pope he told me in an interview, so to watch this -- i have to say, i'm taken attack by it as a journal and it's personally know itting the background and knowing his vision of wanting to reform the church and realizing he is side by side with john paul during his long convalescence, this is a pope that died before the world. taught the world how to die. a real shock to many catholics around the world and i think people of other faiths as well. and we'll see w

[ cheers ] >> having a baby at the age of 90, memaw. just saying. nothing's out of the realm of possibility here. >> reporter: most pastors aren't as funny as foxworthy. he assured us he's not trying to compete in that arena. he knows his limitations. >> when i started hosting "fifth grader," people certainly thought i was smarter than i was, you know. and i would say, hey, if i didn't have the cards -- the shortest show on television. and now i'm doing this and people think, well, this guy has all the spiritual answers in the world. i'm like, no, i'm still the samsame idi idiot. still two decision was drywalling, you know. >> reporter: for "today," harry smith, los angeles. >>> let's head out to the plaza and check the weather from dylan. >> good morning, lester. good morning, everyone. you're from miami?
